Clearly no proof either way.
Re #78 and #80, there's no contradiction. The student tells Columbia that the offer cannot be accepted due to financial reasons, and Columbia releases the student. That is how it works, no "petition" is necessary.
We should publicize this anomaly of having to "fight" to be released; which school was it? Applicants should know which schools are not following the rules. There's no reason to scare off students who need financial aid from applying ED to their dream schools that follow the rules.
I am an Asian, but a first generation student. Will this "hook" help me even though I'm Asian, and if so, how?
Your guide also said that chances of being accepted to a top college are greatly reduced if no one has been to that school. I go to a small christian school with a small high school of 200 students. None of our students go to Ivy league school, we've only had one go to Cornell which was 5 years ago. Now, what should I do? I'm currently a rising junior and it's to late to transfer. Should I transfer to another school for my senior year?
